  1. Hola,
    Thank you, Maangchi... for all you do. My father was in Korea many years ago in the Army and always speaks of a pickled daikon side dish that he calls chungachi. I have searched every where for this and nothing. I am a trained chef, visiting my mother and father and would love to make some of this before I head back home to Costa Rica. I had a korean friend growing up and she called it pickled root (redish daikon strips with sesame/soy/hot pepper. Thanks...
